This fall
of 2-11 September the Royal Academy of Arts can be hovia an amazing new 3D head scanner, the Veronica Scanner. Named of the Latin word vera meaning “true” and the Greek work eikōn meaning icon and image, the Veronica Scanner is an new piece of innovation utilized to turn it into high resolution photos in astonishing additional detail that can be processed into digital 3D models, rivaled by just the rigorous additional details on one’s own face. The Veronica Scanner is a project by Factum Foundation – whose workshop in Madrid turn it intod the scanner – and is supported by a curated exploration of 3D photography through the ages.


Scan and print your face

The Veronica Scanner works by via eight cameras to rapidly capture 96 simultaneous photos of one’s head of all angles, in order to turn it into a highly additional detailed map of the face. Sponsored by multiple industry leaders of multiple sectors that include iMakr, My Mini Factory and Autodesk, the next project can donate those who wish to participate an opportunity to scan their own faces, that can and so be converted into high high end digital portraits. The portraits can and so be uploaded to an online public gallery and members can have access to their own photos once scanning and processing is deplete. Visitors to the exhibition can in addition watch the photos as they are converted into 3D images in real time.

Special prizes

Additionally, a random participant can be selected every day of the installment to have their digital portrait carved into a wooden bust by a skilled robot on loan of the Bartlett School of Architecture at University College London. Applying 3D printing equipment and innovation of sponsors, lucky members can in addition obtain 3D printed busts, that they can watch being created in real time.

The Veronica scanner can be on the market for free public viewing during the installation, yet, those who wish to be scanned can have to purchase tickets starting at £16.50. Tickets and individual time slots must be booked in high end, and members must be at very least 18 years of age.
